Guys with Guitars slated for Nov. 13 Schomburg Series performance

November 1, 2012


DEFIANCE, Ohio – Defiance College presents Guys with Guitars for the next Schomburg Series concert on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 7 p.m. in Schomburg Auditorium This performance brings together three regionally recognizable solo musicians - Neil Jacobs, Doug Wood and Darren Frate – for a concert you won’t want to miss.

Neil Jacobs transforms his 12-string acoustic guitar into his own personal orchestra and shares his fascinating stories with the audience. Doug Wood’s contemplative, melody-driven music can shift from a sweet solo fingerstyle guitar piece to a composition looping energetic world rhythms. Rounding out the trio is Darren Frate, whose innovative work on the bass is reminiscent of bass masters like Jaco Pastorius and Michael Manring. Using foot pedals and looping, he's able to create fully orchestrated melodic tunes live on stage. Together, they will explore multiple styles, from New Age to classical, jazz to world, and from Americana to gypsy music.

Individual performance tickets are $10 and are available at the door.
